Autumn

It’s the Season to Cozy Up!

When the weather turns crisp like an apple,
we naturally start to spend more time indoors.

And even though the furnace gets turned on, there’s something really comforting about pulling on an oversized sweater, a long pair of soft leggings, and some wool socks.

This is also the time of year to change the way you dress your home, whether you’re listing or staying. Roll out the rugs to layer over carpet, incorporate a lot of different textures through the use of throws and pillows, and light your scented candles.

Color palettes shift in the fall too. Bright reds transition to cranberry tones, oranges morph into rusts, yellows turn into golds, and even lavendars become saturated purples.

Remember that staging or redesigning your
home starts at the curb. Cut back all of your
perennials and tuck them in for the winter.
Remove all of your tired annuals and replace
them with plants featuring an autumn color
scheme. Adding a few pumpkins and gourds
to window boxes or a planter welcomes visitors
at your front door.

Typically when staging inside, it’s best to
neutralize any odors and even keep pleasing
fragrances from being overpowering. But in
the fall, walking into a home that smells of
pumpkin spice or apple cinnamon adds to the
cozy feeling that you want your visitors to
experience.

Sprinkle your fall color palette inside too with
a few pops in a pillow, tabletop accessory or
some wall art.

If you happen to have a fireplace, stoke it up or
turn it on. Note though that if you’re burning
real logs, don’t also burn scented candles. The
hodge-podge of smells may be too much. Of
course with gas fireplaces, go ahead and light
those scented candles.

Open up all the curtains and blinds and let in
as much natural light as possible. Then add
artificial lighting through a few table lamps
and a floor lamp that are placed in a triangle
shape in your living room. This will brighten
up your space and make it look more spacious
and inviting!

Lastly, finish accessorizing your coffee table
with a stack of hardcover books topped with a
cup and saucer. Potential buyers will envision
themselves snuggling up with the throw and
pillows for a hot tea and a good read.
